The award recognises the company’s phenomenal growth since its humble beginnings as a children’s party supplier with just one bouncy castle in 1997. Today, Flying Elephant handles more than 2,000 events a year, offering exciting activities such as fun children’s birthday parties with magicians, face painters and clowns; slick corporate events boasting world-class entertainment; team-building days featuring challenging games, and much, much more.
“Flying Elephant has come a long way over the past ten years, and this award recognises the efforts and accomplishments of our team,” said General Manager, Stuart Maughan.
“Being honoured at such a prestigious event just goes to prove what our customers have known for years – whether you’re looking for an elegant gala dinner, a memorable children’s party, or maybe the chance to fight your boss while dressed as sumo wrestler at your company’s next annual family fun day, Flying Elephant is the only place to shop for events!”
In his acceptance speech David Bayatti, Flying Elephant’s Managing Director, put the company’s success down to the support of its customers. “We’re very lucky that every invoice we send is linked to a celebration,” he joked to the audience. “We’d like to thank all our clients for their fantastic support.”
Earlier this month Flying Elephant also received the IIR Middle East Business Achievement (MEBA) award for Best Small Business of the Year. The awards ceremony was held in conjunction with the Leaders in Dubai Conference, and has been recognised as one of the most prestigious business events for a Middle East organisation or individual.
With decades of combined industry experience, Flying Elephant’s dedicated team specialises in providing exceptional solutions for all types and sizes of events. They provide events ranging from a Bond-themed gala dinner to a trade fair animation, or even special occasions for palaces and royalty.
Flying Elephant has recently launched two new divisions. The first to cater solely to the MICE industry, and the second division operates as an independent entertainment agency supplying a diverse range of local and international artists and performers.
